I had once had an error with Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, about using the Update Manager. Then I have searched for a solution in Google, and found about the Ubuntu Tweak. It had fixed my problem about the repositories and broken packages, and I have also had updated my system to the latest release. Having Ubuntu Tweak is like having Synaptic Package Manager, Update Manager and Ubuntu Software Center rolled into one.

The latest version of Ubuntu Tweak as of writing is 0.5.10.
